In the past years the plant kingdom has been of great interest as a source of potential of insecticidal products. In addition natural insecticides can provide core structures from which new insecticidal agents can be synthesized. Although the natural products are very effective against many insects, their synthetic preparation is not that efficacious. Plant insecticides still represent only a small fraction of the insecticidal material used very year. However as a consequence of stricter environmental legislation, increased resistance of pests to synthetic pesticides, growing residue awareness among the consumers, mounting industrial research and the development cost of chemical insecticides, there has been shift towards the interest for the use of natural insecticides. Thiophene is a photosensitive natural insecticide which is really effective and has many applications both in industrial and in pharmaceutical products.
